BRUSSELS: Britain is confident it can reach a Brexit agreement with the European Union in October, the country's chief negotiator on leaving the bloc said on Tuesday.

"There are still gaps, we've had an honest conversation about those," he added.

Raab also said he wanted the sides to try agreeing on a political level what they have so far failed to iron out in technical talks.
